I started on the low carb WOE in 2001. I had always been overweight and tried everything. Then I picked up the Atkins book on a fluke tried it and it worked. I went from 202 to 169 in about 1 year got in shape began running life was great. I followed the advice in the book and found 90g of carbs a day to be my key number and stuck with it for awhile. Alot of my success had to do with this news group and the people on it. Then a 2 years ago something I began eating crap alot of it at first nothing happened because of my workout schedule then that went out the window soon all the weight came back. Now here I am trying to get back into this WOE and it is hard almost impossible I try and fail to redo induction alot. I am writing this for my own sake and also to let the people in this newsgroup know that the battle is never over and once you stop this WOE its hard to get it back. I am hoping that through using this newsgroup again that I can finally succeed in redoing induction so I will be posting daily menus here over the next two weeks hoping that I can get some responses and input. Thank you.
